Chef & Catering Services

  • Claire’s Kitchen
    For more traditional food and service, Claire serves delicious food which is often produced on her own farm a few miles up the road. Her Muscovy duck with red wine and sour cherry was recently enjoyed so much that the diners at The Moult applauded the chef at the end of the meal.

  • The Galley Girls
    Gemma and Polly are happy to cater and serve a dinner party or an evening of cocktails and canapés. Recently they produced a sumptuous beef Wellington served with potato dauphinoise and their lemon posset is tangy and wonderful. Equally they too are more than happy to drop off homemade dishes such as lasagne for guests to warm up themselves so that the entire stay isn’t cooking in the kitchen.

  • Dartmouth Fine Foods
    Here are sophisticated bespoke caterers who will design each event for you. Serin Aubrey will take over the kitchen and prepare mouthwatering feasts with highlights including Devon lamb and local line-caught sea bass. His tarte tatin should win awards! Over the summer, Serin also delivered chicken and vegetable tagines and a series of Moroccan side dishes for the guests to warm up themselves and guests in 2015 raved about the moussaka that Dartmouth Fine Foods dropped off for them.

  • Wild Artichokes
    This is a newer duo who ‘pop up’ at special local events and do private catering in great style. Jane and Sam are incredibly experienced having worked at The River Café and Riverford Organic Field Kitchen and their food has a strong southern Italian accent. Thank goodness the dining table is huge as when they recently prepared a dinner at The Moult the generous dishes kept coming. Their truffle arancini melt in the mouth as do the crab and chilli bruschetta. Their fish bourride with aioli, rouille and croutons, is certainly a dish which should stay in the memory for many years. Wild Artichokes’ desserts are sublime, there are no words to describe their amazing baked custard with blackcurrents and hot raspberry clafoutis!

The Seahorse Seafood Restaurant
Celebrity chef Mitch Tonks runs this fabulous restaurant, serving some of the best locally caught fish and shellfish in the UK. Mr Tonks is the number one man for fish, and his food is all about flavour.

As this place is always popular, we strongly advise you book well in advance to reserve a table.

Rockfish Seafood & Chips
Rockfish is an upmarket fish and chips restaurant owned by Mitch Tonks, more relaxed and less expensive than The Seahorse. But it is a great place to take the family for quality classics in funky surroundings.

Top Places to Visit

Salcombe

Without doubt one of the most beautiful places in Devon. With its brightly coloured, flower-laden cottages climbing up from the idyllic waterfront and the feel of a subtropical island paradise, Salcombe is the perfect place to escape the throes of city life. If you’re not practising your breaststroke or perfecting your sandcastles, you might be enjoying lunch out at a waterside restaurant or relaxing on an open ferry ride. Blessed with one of the best natural harbours in the British Isles, it is well heeled and comfortable – a nautical love affair (both Crew Clothing and Jack Wills started out here). Fore Street is where all the best shops are, while North Sands and South Sands beaches offer stunning views of the turquoise estuary. Be sure to try some of Salcombe’s amazing award-winning ice cream from the Salcombe Dairy – especially the honeycomb flavour.

Salcombe Beaches

North Sands is located towards Bolt Head and next to the ruins of Salcombe Castle. A lovely beach with fine golden sands, a shop and the best beach café around – The Winking Prawn – that serves local seafood. At South Sands and Splat Cove there is a lovely sandy beach with fine sand, a shop, café, a beachside restaurant and every imaginable watersport for you to enjoy. You can also take the (seasonal) ferry into Salcombe.

Bantham Beach
Surfers know Bantham as the South Coast’s premier surfing beach, home to much wildlife with its rare sand dune habitat. Also well known is The Sloop Inn serving good pub food, including lots of local fresh fish right near the beach.

Hope Cove
The pretty and secluded fishing village of Hope Cove with its fine sandy beaches and calm waters is perfect for families. Sheltered by Bolt Tail, the Cove’s sandy beaches with small waves are excellent for small children.

Thurlestone
A pretty village with thatched old stone buildings and stunning views to the sea, dominated by Thurlestone Rock just off the coast and two big beaches including South Milton Sands.

Burgh Island
Take a sea tractor across to Bigbury-on-Sea and the famous Burgh island
www.kingsbridge.info/hhbigbury

Dartmouth

Dartmouth is similar to Salcombe in its relaxed and affluent atmosphere. The town is fast becoming a very fashionable holiday destination, with lots of boutique shops and quality eateries having popped up in the last few years. However glamorous Dartmouth is becoming, though, the fishing industry still beats on here, and you can sit idly by watching the boats come in and deliver fresh fish to the restaurants lining the water’s edge. Culinary highlights include Seahorse (Tel: 01803 835147) and Rockfish (Tel: 01803 832800). To burn off your fish lunch, be sure to walk up to the gigantic Britannia Naval College, a stunning building which overlooks the town.

Dartmouth Castle
Beautiful 15th century castle nestled in the cliffs around Dartmouth, complete with a huge gun tower and some labyrinthine passages. You can get to Dartmouth Castle via a small ferry which sets sail from the town quay.

Totnes

Totnes prides itself on being different. Since 2006, the town has made every effort to wean itself from a dependence of peak oil. As a result, it has its own local currency – the ‘Totnes Pound’ – and makes every attempt at creating a strong localised community. There are lots of lovely shops here, and almost all are independent; you will find antique books, bespoke furniture, fine art, handmade shoes and market goods. Eateries are excellent, too, with Riverford Field Kitchen (Tel: 01803 762074) coming up trumps.
